I am hoping someone with a good knowledge of the Tonks family might be able to help me with a query. I have found Enoch Edmund Tonks with two wives but the dates confuse me. Enoch is said to have married Mary o'Toole abt 1892 and had two children Kathleen b. 1894 and Raleigh b. 1897 but he is said to have married wife (2) Mary Ann Pearse b. 1864 d. 22 feb 1933 on the 5th december 1894 ... the year & Month his daughter was born to Mary O'Toole. Can anyone please tell me if the dates are incorrect, Enoch's religion permitted dual marriages or if the two Mary's were the same person perhaps married before.Enoch was born 26th September 1870 and died 11th september 1944 in Wellington, NZ.
I have Tonks on my website and would appreciate any help filling in the gaps. I search Ancestry.com for help and Later Day Saints but if anyone has the time to email me with their branches, corrections or updates to the TONKS family it would be fantastic.
